The breathtaking ride with a private guide
You will be picked up right at your hotel or other designated area in Tórshavn. Relax while the local tour guide happily shares knowledge about the beautiful sights you will see along the journey. We will stop to see sights such as Leitisvatn, Nykurin statue, Bøur, Tindhólmur, Drangarnir. – and the most popular waterfall of them all, Múlafossur.
The tour starts with a 45-minute drive to Sørvágur where we will enjoy a short coffee break. From there we will drive to the village Bøur, often referred to as the village with the best view. We will take a stroll through the picturesque village and hear some history. From Bøur you will see the free-standing rocks named “Dranganir” and the amazing islet of Tindhólmur.
After Bøur we will drive through the only tunnel on the island to the distant and previously very isolated village of Gásadalur. Here we will enjoy lunch and take a walk to the most photographed waterfall in the Faroes, Múlafossur.
From Gásadalur we will drive past Leitisvatn, the largest fresh-water lake on the islands. Here we will drop off those who have opted for the optional extra hike to the “Lake above the Ocean”.
From here we will drive to Sandavágur village where we will have the chance to see the Trøllkonufingur (Witch’s Finger) freestanding cliff and visit the local Church. Here you will hear about religion and old customs on the islands.
From Sandavágur we will drive back to the Leitisvatn lake and say Hello to the Nykur statue and hear the legend of this Fairy Tale creature. Then we will visit the war museum where historical memorabilia from the Second World War and the British occupation of the Faroes are explained.
From here we will pick up the hikers and return to Tórshavn.
This tour includes lunch, beverages, entrance fees to Sandavágur church and the war museum.
OPTIONAL EXTRA: The Trælanípan or the “Lake above the ocean” hike is available as an optional extra. NOTE if chosen, you will not see the Witch’s Finger, the church in Sandavágur or the War Museum. The difficulty is easy to medium/hard.
